DIRTY BEACHES : LP BadlandsDirty Beaches
Part cassette culture Elvis, part Alan Vega alienator, this guy's doing for rockabilly what Ariel Pink did for funk-pop nostalgia. "The concept behind Badlands, is about a man who is possessed by the road. My mother used to say to me, ‘you walk at night often enough, sooner or later you'll run into a ghost.’ I think it’s very true, as the devil comes in all forms. just here to fuck your shit up. Side a is all bangers, with songs about leaving, and being chased on the road, and driving a burning car into oblivion. Side b is ballads, and dirges laced with murder and lament."
